The Dutch team announced that some players from its roster and staff members had the disease after finding antibodies in tests carried out in June.
Ajax has confirmed that several players and staff members have had coronavirus.
Dutch newspaper The Telegraph reported a few days ago that 13 people, including members of the campus and staff, were found to have antibodies against COVID-19 after doing approximately 90 tests in June.
Ajax communications chief Miel Brinkhuis told De Telegraaf that these provisions indicate that there are no current cases of COVID-19 on the campus led by Erik ten Hag.
“It is true that several players and staff members have had the coronavirus,” said Brinkhuis, who did not confirm the identity of the players who contracted the disease.
“I want to emphasize that there is currently no one with coronavirus and, except Andre Onana, who has mild ankle complaints, everyone was present at training on Tuesday,” he added.
Ajax prepares to start a new season at the Eredivisie: it debuts against Sparta Rotterdam on September 13.
Ten Hag’s men were declared champions of the 2019-20 campaign when the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) canceled the season amid the coronavirus pandemic in April.
